>> shepard: live pictures in the streets of paris this evening. in the spot where the flames tore through the ancient church for more than 12 hours. nearly gutting it. and now questions over what started the fire and promises to rebuild what church officials call the beating heart of france. around this time yesterday, we were reporting that firefighters said they were not sure the cathedral could be saved. that was their announcement at the time. the centuries old wood, stone exterior also made this fire extremely challenging to fight. air dropping water on the flames was not an option they said.
12:03 pm
officials warned the weight of that could cause the church to collapse entirely. this video showing firefighters running into the cathedral as the flames surround it and engulfed it. hundreds of first responders assisting at the scene and reports of nobody seriously hurt. analysts say the damage done to the cathedral may be in some areas, in some cases impossible to fully repair. the building's spire or steeple crumbled not long after the flames broke out. later the fire destroyed the roof and the 800-year-old wooden beams. now in the streets they sing. ♪ ♪
12:04 pm
>> shepard: it is note worthy that on the heels of something so horrible we tend to come together as one people with one thought, no matter how divided as no doubt paris has been as of late. and center ourselves and our minds and our efforts and our collectives around a thing that is so important to us, all of us. not just catholics or parisians or french men or europeans. but citizens of a world that marvelled at a place that had stood for so long, a place in which all of us might have felt
12:05 pm
so small in the grandeur of its structure, the power of its symbols. the warmth of the community within. though the roof is gone and who knows so many treasures may be as well, the people are there celebrating this place that they love because of all that it endured. even now still gives hope for what tomorrow can bring for the leader of france has said that with hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars that are now pledged, they will rebuild as parisians have done throughout history. the cross at the alter was spared a symbol of hope and defin
12:06 pm
defines. emanuel macron spoke. >> we are this people of rebuilders. we have a lot to rebuild. yes, we will build the cathedral of notre dame even more beautiful. and i want for this to be done within the next five years. >> shepard: as we reported here yesterday, the cathedral was at the time undergoing renovations as the fire broke out. investigators say they're looking into whether attempts to save the structure could have risked its destruction. a spokesman for the company that is over sees the construction says his crew is cooperating fully with investigators. >> i think there's professionals with the judicial police and the fire brigade that are working on this. we told our staff that they should collaborate without police units without restrictions. >> shepard: and thus far it appears they are. officials say the fire appears to have been an accident.
12:07 pm
in fact, they reported that in the first hour of fighting it yesterday. we'll have coverage throughout this hour, including history of this grand place, what was lost and to our knowledge what was saved. the efforts to rebuild and the celebration of its history that is underway right now seven minutes past nine on a spring evening in paris, and they march in the streets. ♪
12:08 pm
>> shepard: on this tuesday of holy week, remembering what was lost and focusing on what can be rebuilt. greg palkot kicks off team coverage. he's live in paris this evening. >> shep, it's hard to believe that 24 hours ago the cathedral of notre dame behind us, 300, 400 yards was an inferno of fire and that fire lasted at least 12 hours. we saw the tail end of it, we saw the smoke and the flames bursting up and the firefighters finally dousing it out. some 400 firemen were involved. firemen and women. one was seriously injured. they got the job done. they were finishing up just in the past couple hours.
12:09 pm
the damage, as you have elaborated on, severe. the highest point of the cathedral, the spire, near the back of the nave was toppled. most of the roof was destroyed. inside, some experts saying as much as 2/3s of the wood work has been destroyed. but yes, artifacts were saved including crown of thorns that christians, catholics venerate as being worn by christ in fact during this holy week many years ago. it believed that the rose window perhaps could have been saved as well. and yes, the structure of the building, including two bell towers are in place. the next 48 hours, there will be inspectors looking at to make sure it's stable enough for investigators to go in. because that is the next step of this, to find out exactly what
12:10 pm
caused it. it's believed it was an accident involved with the renovation, but they want to rule anything else out, shep. >> shepard: thanks, greg. so we were following along as they were singing around the area there on the island, greg. you know, for anybody who has visited it, it's such a place of great hustle and huge crowds. tourists from time to time to see this. somber mood is striking. and now apparently bowing to pray.
12:11 pm
>> shepard: tuesday evening during holy week in paris. a priest is getting credit for saving the crown of thorns. church officials say believers have it that jesus wore this during his crucifixion. the priest reportedly went into the cathedral and went straight to the relics. report is that he saved the
12:12 pm
crown and the blessed sacramens, which is the consecrated bread and wine that catholics believe is the blood and flesh of jesus christ. lauren? >> these are all part of holy week. the priest, jean mark fornier. he's a chaplain for the fire department. the cathedral was burning and he ran inside and saved the relics that would have been central to notre dame's holy week services in the coming days. the crown is to be part of the actual twisted branches that so man soldiers mockingly placed on jesus' head after his arrest calling him the king of the jews. the french cultural minister says they're grateful for its safety. >> we would like to thank the teams and the city hall and the
12:13 pm
firefighters, the bishops that mobilized and made up our team to secure the most precious items, noticeably the crown of thorns and the tunic of st. louis which are now safe. >> st. louis was the only french king to become a saint, shep. >> shepard: lauren, now some of the other relics saved possibly date back to the time of jesus. >> yes. also saved a fragment of wood believed to be on the cross in which jesus was crucified and one of the names believed to be hammered into his flesh. they were found in the fourth century by helena as part of her pilgrimage to the holy land. the relics play a key role in the holy day services. the only day the crown of thorns is shown is good friday. that is this friday.
12:14 pm
what is now uncertain is if the relics will be part of the easter weekend services at another location or if they'll remain stored for safe keeping, shep. >> shepard: thanks, lauren green. next we'll take you live to kabul, afghanistan. nearly 18 years after the war began for a look at the renewed push for peace.

12:19 pm
after nearly 18 years and 2,283 service members killed, u.s. service members, american warriors are still dieing in afghanistan. just last week a roadside bomb killed three marines. in a generation where they know only war, there's still hope for peace, this month a renewed effort to end the fighting for good with peace talks in qatar. even still, just days ago, the taliban declared plans for a spring offensive against american forces. steve harrigan was in afghanistan when the war first broke out. >> and who is shooting at whom behind you? >> i tell you, the positions are about a mile -- will you get down over there? >> shepard: steve is back on the

ground where it began. he's reporting live from kabul. any sense of optimism in the middle of these reported peace talks? >> shepard, much nicer conditions 18 years later. we have light, water. if you walked around kabul for a few days like we have done, you don't get the sense that this is a place where an active war is going on. of course, in parts of the country that's what's happening. the taliban is fighting for position ahead of the peace talks. the u.s. is doing the same. it's a remote war. one side using bombs buried under roads. the other side using drones. they're fighting each other for position before peace talks. if you walk around kabul, you can see the traffic, the bustle. a city whose population has quadrupled. before it was helmets and flak jackets. now you can walk around. when you talk to people, you do get really mixed emotions. on one hand a sense of hope.
12:21 pm
maybe this could be not the worst thing in the world. taliban is part of our country. they should be included. the other hand, people say they don't trust them. they're going to try to turn back the clock and rush us. two girl schools were bombed in one part of the country this week. is that is what is coming or has the taliban changed the past 18 years? they're certainly trying to put up a p.r. campaign that they have changed. they'll have women on their negotiating team, they need international aid but they are coming. they're talking and still fighting at the same time, shepard. >> shepard: steve harrigan live early this wednesday morning kabul. up next, campaigns and candidates spent billions in the last presidential election. with all eyes on the big prize this year, the top contenders are already counting their cash. experience the style,

12:30 pm
jonathan, the one with the most president is president trump by a long shot. on the democratic said, everybody is counting dollars. >> there's a couple things here, which is the big point is, money is likely to matter less than ever in the 2020 presidential election. and president trump ironically given he's now got the most money was the leading edge of this in 2016. used to be the case that you needed a certain amount of money to be viable and show that you've got enthusiasm. that's true to some extend. but people -- i've covered trump almost four years now. people forget how shoestring his campaign was and understaffed it was and how he spent around half of what hillary clinton did and yet still beat her. so now he does have a proper machine. they're raising a ton of money particularly on facebook. it unclear whether it's going to be decisive or matter that much in 2020. >> shepard: a lot of his came from free media. how can these democratic
12:31 pm
candidates expect to get that? >> some of them like bernie sanders are good at it. woe saw it on fox. most of them are avoiding fox. bernie sanders got a big audience and put his message out there. i tell you, the person who has the most trump-like approach to the media is pete buttigieg. he's taking -- looks like trump in 2016. he would go on any radio show, tv shows. pete buttigieg did the buzz feed podcast, all sorts of media. they're not turning up their nose at unconventional media. he seams to be taking the most trumpian even though in style he couldn't be more style, trumpian approach to media strategy. >> shepard: thanks, jonathan. you mentioned the town hall last night on fox news. the most watched town hall of the year.

reason and removing statues and artwork and turning the cathedral into a storage room. then came napoleon who returned the cathedral to the catholic church and ordered its restoration. the real renovations didn't come until 1831 until the hunch back of notre dame sparked brand new interest in the cathedral, shep. >> shepard: the repair and renovation seems to be a constant there. >> it is. france owns notre dame, but the catholic church is allowed to use it in perpetuity, which comes for the call of who pays for it. when it's 800 years old, it always needs tlc. here's movie tone footage from 1936. >> notre dame, built in the middle ages when they fashioned these strange gothic gargoyles.
